  • a Tobacco Premium Surcharge of $25 per pay check if employees or their spouse use tobacco ($50 per pay check if both employee and spouse use tobacco).  The annual cost of the surcharge will be $650 for employee or spouse only/$1,300 for employee + spouse.  Important: Tobacco users can avoid the tobacco surcharge by signing up for Highmark’s tobacco cessation program.
